Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I talk with Massachusetts potter Steve Theberge. His functional pots are decorated with slips that are reduction cooled to create rich earth tones. In our interview we talk about the influence of Zen monastic training and social justice work on his studio practice, as well as his educational roots in the apprenticeship system. We also discuss the newly formed Early Career Fellowship for BIPOC Ceramic Artists that is supported by the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail. Steve is a host for the yearly event that brings thousands of ceramic lovers to Western Mass each spring. For more information visit www.stevetheberge.com and www.asparagusvalleypotterytrail.com.
